Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

It means that there is a month of baseball left to be played and that a bad week is no reason to start jumping off the ledge when we're still in first and up by 2.

Bad loss, awful with RISP, pitching wasn't there.

Maybe we look so worn down because Robin ran out the same lineup too often this year, and Kenny failed to get him a decent bench.

The good news is we have a lot more home games left than on the road. Bad news is 6 of those are vs. Detroit and KC against whom we can't buy a win right now.

Need a win tomorrow.

We really didn't play that well. I think tomorrow will be different.

You're right. This team sucks, they can't beat losing teams, they're flawed. They have mental issues. This team has never showed any mental strength. Who cares if they're in first and other teams have problems. This sox team is worse than them too.

Did I cover everything there?

I'm disappointed in the pitching. I expected better from Peavy tonight. He was not sharp from the first inning on, and it's not good to be walking Andy Dirks ahead of the heart of this Detroit batting order. Jake made that mistake twice. It cost him twice.

We have not received good pitching on the road trip as a whole. We need a good one from Liriano tomorrow.

I'm signing off to the let the depressed people have their fun. I expect the Sox to struggle this weekend, but I still have confidence they'll win the division.

Good night.

We deserved to lose this game.

Peavy just didn't have it, Thornton should never be used in close games. Also, Dunn is just atrocious at the plate. He is a slightly better version of Dave Kingman.

Terrible effort by the Sox. Going into this series, I thought this game was their best chance to win a game in Detroit - but they pissed it away with all those LOBs and Peavy's big game performance.

Peavy could have been better, but he left the game tied. Thornton may not get charged with three runs, but he gave up the HBP and the double and ultimately deserves more of the blame.

Just win tomorrow.

I will go to sleep tonight counting the double digit stranded runners. Fister had nothing and we couldn't put him away. I also was scratching my head when Robin left Peavy in to face Cabrera in the 7th. I sensed the knockout blow was coming after that. Also, Thornton was 94 mph and straight as arrow tonight.

Peavy didn't look good but he pitched well enough not to lose, he had no business being out there in the seventh.
